Filip Senc-Samardzic from Toronto, Canada has announced his verbal commitment to Arizona State University for 2023-24.

“I’m so excited to announce my verbal commitment to Arizona State University where I will continue my athletic and academic career. I huge thank you to my coaches, family and friends who have supported me on my journey. Thanks again to coach Bowman and coach Behm for giving me this opportunity. It’s only the beginning! Forks up! 🔱😈”

A free/fly specialist, Senc-Samardzic represented Canada at the 2022 Junior Pan Pacific Championships. He finished fifth in the 100 fly (53.82) and sixth in the 100 free (51.04), then led off the 4×100 free relay in 50.78. He also swam in prelims of the 50 free, 200 free, and 200 IM.
